Biotronik already holds the title of having the world’s only implant that is capable of sending the ECG data automatically in case of heart rhythm disorder. Now, it has announced the first implantations of its new Lumax VR-T and Lumax DR-T ICDs. The recently announced Lumax ICD features a defibrillator that is able to give life-saving electric shocks. And the good thing is that the Lumax ICD automatically sends the vital diagnostic data via the cellular phone network to the cardiologist. The Biotronics’s home monitoring technology can even transfer the data through an SMS, e-mail or fax to the physician if the patient is in critical conditions or the heart rhythm is not apt. The comapany hasn’t created a product page for its new series of ICDs.
